6:50 am
virginia and across the lower eastern shore counties. at least the most potent ones are. not to say we don't have any heavy rain out there. stretching from the city to the i-95 corridor we have pretty heavy rain at the present time. so fur planning on getting from 95 up in the city to cecil county, you're going to run into that. but right now no warnings in effect. flight moderate rain in the suburbs at the present time. things should start to improve takeover next couple of hours. i think the threat for severe weather will be diminished because we expect a cold front to go through. let's take a look at some of the wind gusts we've recorded. you don't have to be in the wind -- just had a 41 mile-per-hour ghust gaithersburg. the other big story the change in the temperatures. right now in the upper 60's and
6:51 am
lower fifty's. comfortable. but we will drop into the 30's by later this afternoon. as a matter of fact you can see the rain changing to snow in western pennsylvania and west virginia. so the temperatures go from the 60's here to the low 30's out in the front in ohio, and the cold hair is sweeping across western maryland. so as soon as this front goes through, it will end the threat for severe weather but it will start to drop the temperatures. it will be windy. temperatures will start out in the 60's and fall into the 30's and 40's for your drive home but it should be drive for your evening commute. temperatures will drop back into the upper 20's overnight. dry but cold on thursday and friday with the highs in the low to mid 40's. as we head into the weekend, thickening clouds and a chance for light snows or flurries. on sunday with a high of 38,
